Which coil should i wrap for an 18350 mech mod?
hello forum!

since this is the only vaping related place i am at i´ll just throw my question out here.
i am getting my foggatti 18350 clone in the next few days,so i got into thinking about its future setup.
i´ll run it with efest imr flat top v1 batteries with 800 mah, and it´ll be used as my work device(bicycle workshop for those who are interested,just a side note).

on my vv mod i am used to 1.8 to 2 ohm microcoil/cotton setups @3.8-4.2 volts,if that helps.

i have no problem with carrying around a second battery,so it will make it over the day.

but:how should i set up my foggatti genesis atomizer to give an average hit without exceeding the amp limits of my batteries,and an average battery life.

center of gravity lies in the safety aspect here.(i´ve got a kamry safety fuse,but i´m sure you could point me at other things to look at)

so,how should i set it up guys!apprechiating your input!

I would start with coils at around 1.2 ohms, you can get good vapor & flavor on mech mod & can still be used on vv/vw mod. A fully charged efest 800mah will cope well as at 4.2 volts & 1.2 ohms will only draw 3.5 amps at 14.7 watts. too easy :)

3.5 is okay for a battery with 4c and 800mah?
mathematically that shouldnt work,should it?

sorry,i just dont want to blow my face off :)

I have the same battery & use them at and below 1 ohm. Use this calculator & compare with manufacturer battery ratings:)
